Be Aggressive But Not Too Aggressive
If there's one thing, that car dealers are known for it's being too pushy. In the sales world, car dealers are basically the top tier when it comes to getting someone in the door and leaving with a new car almost every time.
And although you want to be a little aggressive in order to close on a deal, you also want to respect your customers and listen to what they're saying. Remember that the more they trust you, the more likely they are going to be to come back to your car dealership for their next several cars.
You may think that you know exactly what your customers want, but if you don't listen, you aren't going to close on the deal. To make sure that you are really listening, start your initial conversation with each customer out by asking them questions like:
- What are you looking for?
- What's your price range
- What features do you want?
- Are you financing through us?
Once they answer these questions, you can help them find the right car that will meet all of their needs the first time around.
Don't Be Afraid to Go Big
Even though you do want to listen to your customers wants and needs, more often than not, people are coming in under budget for what they can really afford which means that they usually have a little more wiggle room than they are letting on. Although you can try to give them the most frugal option available, don't be afraid to go big and show them something that's a little newer, has more bells and whistles, and that may even cost more.
By using these three easy tips when you work at a car dealership, you can hopefully make more sales than anyone else in your office. For more information, contact your local dealership.
